Good retailer in Toronto?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm going to be in the Toronto area this weekend, and I'm wondering if anyone knows a good discount retailer in the GTO. I'm looking for 04/05 Fischer RX6s.

I know Skiis and Biikes from their Collingwood branch, but don't know much about any other shops in that area. They've seemed high priced when I've stopped in previously.

Any recommendations?

"Good" and "discount" generally tend not to overlap much in ski retail places. You can either go to a big sporting goods store and get cheaper skis and service from people who don't ski, or pay a bit of a premium and go to a proper ski store and get good service from people who know what they're talking about.

In Collingwood the two stores I go to are Squire John's (www.squirejohns.com), which is on Highway 26, just past Osler Bluff road (as you head away from Collingwood), and Skiis and Biikes. I've heard the Sporting Life in Collingwood is good too, haven't been there though.

In Toronto, I like Skiis and Biikes (they've got a location in Mississauga, and one on Don Mills Road), as well as Sign of the Skier (which is on the west side of Yonge, a little south of Lawrence. Sporting Life is good too (there's one just a block or so north of Sign of the Skier).

Thanks for the input. From their website it doesn't look like Squier John's carries Fischer. Does anyone know different?

And to clarify, I know what I want ... so knowledgable staff willing to spend time with a customer isn't a differentiator since I'm going to the store just to pick up skis. I don't want to pay a premium for take-out.

I see "service" for a discount retailer as having good selection, having advertised merchandise in-stock, competitive prices and convenient hours.
